The Codiac RCMP is investigating a couple of robberies that happened last week in Moncton. Last Thursday night, shortly before 9:30 p.m., a man entered the Doghouse Pub at 269 McLaughlin Drive and demanded money from an employee. He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect is described as 5’8″ tall, with grey stubble on his face. He was wearing a black toque, a black jacket with a hood, and yellow and grey gloves.
A few hours later, around 11 p.m., a man robbed the Tim Hortons located at 1166 Mountain Road. The suspect in the second robbery is described as a man between 20 and 30 years of age, approximately 5’10” tall. He was wearing a blue plaid jacket, a ball hat with a red brim, and jeans.
